The weekend

Last weekend brought so much happiness. It was a great time! We picked up my husband's kilt. His tartan is the red/green one. I had a scarf made and the blue/green tartan is mine. The kilt is so beautiful, way more than we expected. Linda did a wonderful job!

My husband googled a scottish bakery and is was delicious! The sweets were sampled by all! By the way, they ship. I will be ordering soon. I loved the old world feel of this little bakery.

I had to stop at a quilt shop. I picked up some backing fabric which is the blue. I also picked up the 7th fat quarter in the little owl collection. I have been to this shop several times in the past 6 months and slowly collected fat quarters. I think I have enough to start the quilt.

We did a ton of shopping. I have lost 50 pounds so I bought some clothes. I had to try on several things at many store before I found the 2 pairs of dress pants, 2 tops and a pair of jeans. Little victory, they are all 2 sizes smaller than what I was wearing.

We ate at this resturant at my son's request on the way down. Yummy home style cooking. Note the weather station rules and how to use the rock, funny stuff.

We went to Tio's in Ann Arbor and saw the 5 pound nacho called Mt Nachismo. We didn't order it because it was way too big!! Great place to eat. We saw this on one of our favorite TV shows Man vs. Food.

Adventures, new clothes, eating new places and spending a wonderful time = tons of happy memories
